Be Wise In What Is Good, And Simple Concerning Evil

“For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil.” – Rom. 16:19

Be wise in what is good; know that well, live it and teach it.

Be simple concerning evil; keep from it, expose it, and do not learn it.

Love good, hate evil. Do not contaminate yourself with wickedness – this is true liberty. This is real freedom.

Imagine a society that held to these two short, simple mandates. Imagine what that might look like.
